“His California Album” was a return to form for Bobby “Blue” Bland. Having turned his personal life round in 1971, he turned his career round in 1973. For the first time in nearly ten years, his album charted, spending nineteen weeks in the US Billboard…

Eddie Floyd – 1971 – Down To Earth

The bold, ambitious Down to Earth represents Eddie Floyd’s most daring break from the classic Stax sound. Produced and arranged in collaboration with the great Steve Cropper, its muscular soul sound draws heavily on psychedelic rock sensibilities, favoring extended jams, mutating tempos, and thick, bubbling rhythms. Cropper’s scorching guitar is…

Freda Payne – 1971 – Contact

A totally great album from Freda Payne – a set that moves strongly past her initial early hits for the Holland Dozier Holland team, into a realm that’s even more sophisticated overall! There’s a full approach here that’s really wonderful – almost a higher-concept version…

Lou Rawls – Merry Christmas, Baby

Of the major R&B stars of the 1960s and ’70s, Lou Rawls was the singer who seemed most comfortable slipping into the easy groove of Las Vegas-style lounge belting, which is no insult — Rawls had both the voice and the musical instincts to sing straight-ahead soul, jazz, or…

As if Louis Armstrong singing about “Christmas in New Orleans“, “Chistmas In Harlem” and even a “White Christmas” weren’t enough to make this album a classic, Satchmo called on a few of his friends. And when your guest list includes Duke Ellington, Lena Horne, Mel…

Labi Siffre -1973 – Crying Laughing Loving Lying

This album never got the credit it deserved. The songs are sparse, occasionally orchestrated, but always beautiful. The emotion is there for all to hear in both the music and the words. Listen to this album and I guarantee you will feel better afterwards. Sometimes…

The Intrigues, a Soul vocal group out of Philadelphia (Alfred Brown, James Lee, James Harris and Ronald Hamilton) were active from the late 1960s through to about 1972, and although making the national charts three times in that span, are generally regarded as a One-Hit…

Timmy Thomas – 1972 – You’re The Song I’ve Always Wanted To Sing

A Miami soul masterpiece from start to finish – and a lesser-known record from drum machine hit maestro Timmy Thomas! The album’s got the feel of Timmy’s classic Why Can’t We Live Together album – but the overall sound is a bit fuller and richer,…

Nina Simone – 1965 – I Put A Spell On You

One of her most pop-oriented albums, but also one of her best and most consistent. Most of the songs feature dramatic, swinging large-band orchestration, with the accent on the brass and strings. Simonedidn’t write any of the material, turning to popular European songsmiths Charles Aznavour, Jacques Brel, and Anthony…
